There will be more content to experience in Borderlands 3 than Borderlands 2, according to the game’s senior producer Anthony Nicholson. This is going to include the likes of side missions, rare spawns, enemy hunts, crew challenges, exploration, boss runs, and the like. The main story will take about the same time, so one assumes that the side content will be beefier.
Borderlands 2 was a fairly big game. It can take you anywhere between thirty to fifty hours to beat, depending on how deep you want to dive in. Well, according to a GamingBolt interview with senior producer Anthony Nicholson, Borderlands 3 is going to be even more massive. Just the main campaign, plus a few side missions, will take you around 35 or so hours. That’s pretty much the same as Borderlands 2, yes, but it seems that there’ll be a ton more side content to keep busy.
Here’s what Nicholson had to say: “There’s all different types of side missions, there’s the main mission, of course. Then there’s other things like all of the different challenges that we have: like the rare spawns, and the enemy hunts, the crew challenges… And those are just different mission type things you can do. There’s also exploration, boss runs, things like that. So there’s a ton of content.” So, yeah. Judging by this, there’s a ton to look forward to in Borderlands 3, such as the beautiful planets Eden-6 and Athenas.
Borderlands 3 is launching for the Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on Friday, September 14th, 2019. It is also going to come out on Google Stadia. As you probably know already, the PC version is going to be an Epic Games Store exclusive for six months after launch. What you might not know is that you won’t be able to preload the game on the Epic Store, so keep that in mind.
